In a Newsmax interview on Tuesday night with former advisor Steve Cortez, President Donald Trump said “it looks like they’re finding tremendous fraud” in the Arizona audit of the 2020 election.
During the interview, Cortez asked President Trump about the Arizona audit. “There’s pretty much uniformity, and the Democrats don’t want to see it. They don’t want to have a vote count in Arizona,” explained Trump. “What Arizona Republican senators have done and are doing now is incredible. They’re doing a forensic study of the biggest county, and it’s 2.1 million votes.”
“And I think, based on preliminary letters written by Karen Fann, who’s incredible, who’s the head of the senate, based on some of these letters it looks like, I’m not involved, it looks like they’re finding tremendous fraud. Now we’ll see in four weeks, it’s going to take a period of time. They had em move everything because it’s in a convention center,” President Trump said.
“It’s a big operation, but we will see in a short period of time. What they have done is incredible. They have to be admired. They’re great American patriots. The Republican senators from Arizona and now other senators, state senators and others, are looking at it because they say the same thing happened to us,” said President Trump.
This comes after the former President issued a statement following reports that up to 17.5% of the ballots in Maricopa County did not match the totals provided to auditors by the Maricopa County election officials. In the statement, President Trump said the 2020 election was “corrupt” and from the “third world,” as National File reported.
“A devastating letter written by Arizona Senate President Karen Fann on voting irregularities, and probably fraud, in Maricopa County during the 2020 Presidential Election. Even the database was illegally deleted after the subpoena to produce the information,” wrote President Trump, referring to the letter where it was revealed that there was a 17.5% discrepancy in the number of ballots provided versus the number of ballots listed in at least one instance. “Senate President Fann has invited Maricopa County officials to a public hearing on May 18 to allow them the opportunity to try to explain what happened to the missing databases, ballots, and other significant issues.”
A letter containing a suspicious white powder was sent to the office of Arizona Senate President Karen Fann, with hazmat teams investigating the package, as National File reported. The letter full of white powder being sent to Fann comes as Arizona Democrats and mainstream media outlets are slamming the forensic audit of the 2020 election results in Maricopa County that is currently taking place. The audit, which Fann authorized in her role as Senate President, was denounced as a “sham” by the Board of Supervisors of Maricopa County last week. Maricopa County also declared that it intends to stop cooperating with the audit.
